CARM: What all importers need to know about CARM

Montreal Gateway Terminal has announced Force Majeure

As a result of the ongoing rail disruption in Eastern Canada, Montreal Gateway Terminal (MGT) declared ‘Force Majeure’ on February 20, 2020, as there is no immediate resolution in sight and a prolonged recovery period is being anticipated.

All inland rail cargo must be evacuated immediately from the Port of Montreal. Import rail containers dwelling more than five calendar days will be charged terminal storage effective Tuesday, February 25th. MGT will offer storage compensation for all current grounded containers which are diverted to truck. This compensation will be applicable only to units diverted through Monday, February 24th, 15:00 hrs.

Please be advised that on top of the additional fee to move cargo by truck, shifting and handling costs at the terminal will apply as well.

We are reviewing all affected cargo and will advise accordingly.

For more information, please call David Lychek, Manager – Ocean & Air Services at (905) 882-4880, ext. 1207.
